FOR­MER chair­man of the Aus­tralian Se­cu­ri­ties and In­vest­ment Com­mis­sion, Alan Cameron, has been ap­pointed to con­duct an in­de­pen­dent re­view of wager­ing in NSW.

Gam­ing and Racing Min­is­ter Gra­ham West said the re­view would pro­vide a frame­work for fu­ture growth and sus­tain­abil­ity of the state’s racing in­dus­try in all three codes thor­ough­breds, har­ness racing and grey­hounds.

Cameron will be as­sisted by Jeremy Thorpe, a reg­u­la­tory econ­o­mist from Price­wa­ter­house­c­oop­ers who West said had pro­vided spe­cial­ist eco­nomic and reg­u­la­tory ad­vice to wager­ing re­views in Vic­to­ria and the ACT.

As agreed by the gov­ern­ment and the chair­men of the three codes of racing in NSW, Gary Pem­ber­ton, Graeme Camp­bell and Percy Al­lan, the re­view will in­clude con­sid­er­a­tion of:

Racing’s sig­nif­i­cant role as an in­dus­try and as an em­ployer
